Chocolate for the Brain Senior Writing Workshop @ GFPL

Great Falls, Montana – The Great Falls Public Library is sponsoring a six-week writing workshop designed for senior citizens and older adults from October 9 – November 13. 

This six-week writing class, Chocolate for the Brain, will be held on Tuesdays from 1:00 – 3:00 pm at the library.  It will be taught by local writer Jenny Kunka.  Along with freelance writing for the Great Falls Tribune, Kunka has also had her work published in various publications and Montana magazines.  She has twice taught a similar workshop at the Great Falls Senior Center with great success.

The charge for the six-week class is $20 per person.  Pre-registration is required.  Although you may pre-register initially by phone, pre-payment is required to secure a spot for you in the classes. You must mail or bring your payment into the library at 301 2nd Ave. North.

Because the task of writing about one’s life can be daunting, the instructor will help students focus on writing snapshots of their lives.  She fosters a safe and respectful environment for students to share their work.  Through the course, Jenny will give brief lessons, employ various guided writing exercises, and assist students to find a clear voice.  Students will have an opportunity to share their work with classmates.

For more information or to pre-register call 453-0349.
